3 reasons to choose Turo/Ken: 1) WAY less time to checkout than an airport rental / off site rental. 2) Hard to find exotic car! 3) Worked within our trip parameters (distance) to make it happen!

Only way to do wine country! Kent was first class, car in excellent condition and the rental experience was great in every way. Would rent from him again without hesitation.

Tony was an outstanding host. He was accommodating to flight delays and changes. The car was in outstanding condition and easy to pickup at the SFO hourly parking lot. Return was just as seamless. Would definitely repeat!

Javier was understanding of my flight delays, and always responded to my messages. Terminal side pickup at SFO was very convenient. Vehicle was clean and as described, and I'd rent again.

A fantastic way to see SF area! Excellent vehicle, easy pick-up and return, and no boring typical airport rental car. This was fun and I'll only use them when back in the area!

Super easy pickup at Turo’s SFO lot, very convenient. Porsche Boxster did not disappoint either. First Turo experience was very positive overall, I’d rent from Edwin any time.

First time using Turo. Will definitely use it again. Process was easier than using on site airport car rental.

When an issue occurred which neither Lucian nor I could have anticipated, his helpfulness, trust and flexibility meant it was resolved with minimal impact. The car is of course fun, practical and quick. Ten years ago it was a pipe dream to rent this sort of vehicle (or anything manual) when travelling in the US, but gone are the days of hearing "Please hold on. Please set luggage cart brake to on." while trundling toward the SFO rental facility dreading what they'll have in the carpark.

Great first experience. Better than regular rental car agencies.

BMW Z4 2009
Janet's Z4 was a wonderful car. It has great handling and is a fun car to drive. The car is a little older but is in great condition, looks wonderful, and drives firm (like a sports car should). The convertible is wonderful for driving around California. The pickup at SFO was smooth and easy using valet service. The drop off was even more smooth since it happened that Janet's husband was at the airport when we were leaving so we drove up, greeted him, grabbed our bags and walked into departures terminal. This was our first experience using Turo and we will definitely do it again based on such a wonderful experience with Turo and flawless experience with Janet and her Z4.

We had an awesome trip with this great looking and even better driving car (we nicknamed him Bruce). The owner communicated very well throughout the whole process and pickup/dropoff at SFO Turo valet made for a stress free trip. The car was spotless and so much fun to drive. We would definitely rent Bruce again!
Sean M. - July 10, 2018

Super simple process even though the rental site is a few minutes from SFO - it's at least on the way in to the city! They easily reimburse ride fare from the airport. The pickup and dropoff process was very easy and they are really careful about pre and post inspections of the car. I talked to Ramesh a couple of times and he was great too! Even mailed me something I left in the car so I was very appreciative ;).

This was my first rental with Turo, and the experience was fantastic. Kent had great communication, and the professionalism of the Turo Valet employees was better than most standard rental companies. Kent was flexible with pickup and drop off time, and free airport pickup was appreciated. 5 stars!

This rental was a last minute decision. I was only in San Francisco for a day and decided that I wanted to rent a vehicle. From the time I landed in San Fran until the time for me to leave, this entire process has been great! Communication was spot on. Car was very clean. We were also reimbursed for the Uber to and from the airport. I would definitely rent with Nicholas again if I were to ever come back to San Francisco.

Pick up wasn’t exactly at the SFO airport as advertised, we had to take an Uber to the location. Other than that unexpected part, the rental was fine.

This was my first turo rental and it was perfect. The car was clean and drove great. The communication was prompt and the pickup and drop off were very simple. Thanks to Jeff and his Mazda Miata for making my birthday weekend that much better!

What can I say but OUTSTANDING. Michael was amazing to deal with throughout the process and the pickup and drop off was so much easier then your typical car rental place. The car was beautiful and was perfect for the sunny weather all weekend. If I find myself in San Francisco anytime soon I will be booking here again.
Freddie S. - September 23, 2019

This is was my time to use Turo and it was super simple, super service, and fantastic host. I will be using this service from now on for all my rental needs. The entire experience from start to finish was seamless. Everyone from the host to the location staff were super helpful & very friendly. Game changer!

Rob truly made our first Turo rental a great experience. The F-Type is an absolute delight to drive, and enjoying the California sun and ocean air with the top down was such a beautiful bonus! Thank you for adding the very best touch of luxury to our anniversary vacation!
Judith E. - October 4, 2019

Ramsey‘s Model 3 was just perfect to get around in the Bay Area and was fun to drive. The car was as new and super clean. Communication with Ramsey was also fantastic and the entire rental has been handled extremely professional! I‘ll definitely consider renting with Ramsey again next time.
Bernd H. - October 2, 2019
Porsche 718 Boxster 2017
Fantastic car and the process with Turo (my first) went very smoothly. Uber to/from SFO was easy to the Turo office, no longer than it would take to get to the airport rental car area. Ali's 718 Boxster was a great car (I've owned 2 Boxsters) and in flawless condition. This is a great car for a trip up to Napa - top raises and lowers in seconds so was easy to use in wine country. I appreciated the Tiptronic automatic as shifting a new car was one less thing to worry about in an unfamiliar area (and in particular on California highways). The car easily accommodated two medium-large checked backs in the trunks, and sync'd easily with my phone for music on the trip. Highly recommended!

Great rental. When we needed an extension it was granted. Car worked well and was very smooth!

Wonderful renters. Appreciated the flexibility to modify the trip and the convenience of Airport pickup
Andreas C. - September 20, 2018
Tesla Model 3 2018
Everything went very smoothly. Picking up the car at the valet lot near SFO is seamless. Turo covers the cab/uber/lyft ride between the valet lot and the airport. And driving the model 3 was a very unique and enjoyable experience. Would certainly rent again from Shubhang next time I am in the area.
Damien C. - October 1, 2019
Ford Mustang 2016
Renting from Michael was as easy as it gets.Communication was always quick and simple. Pick-up and Drop-off close by the SFO airport was super convenient. The car was very clean inside and out and well maintained. The V6 Mustang was the perfect balance of fun, comfort and efficiency for my vacation in California. I encourage anybody to rent from Michael, he is an amazing host and honest person! I would rent from him again without blinking an eye.

As a first time Turo user, this experience couldn’t have been better. The location is super close to the airport, making pickup and dropoff a breeze. The car itself was beautiful and truly a blast to drive. Dan was super friendly and accommodating, which really made this rental something special. I would recommend Dan’s Model S to anyone looking to make the best of their time in the area.

Pick up is not as convenient as airport pickup, but don't let that discourage you from renting. Would use again.

True airport pickup is an amazing perk, and Kent was very easy to work with. Will rent again.

Our rental with Ashwin and TJ was stellar!!! They are accommodating, excellent communicators, friendly and explained anything that we asked about. The car... wow! Just WOW!!! From the moment of pick up, which was prompt and professional we loved our journey. We received the car in impeccable condition, super clean and smelled of lemon or something else that’s fresh and inviting. I will be renting this car again in a couple weeks for a business trip. I highly, highly recommend this vehicle for any adventure that you may take.
Stanley D. - September 20, 2019

Where do I start?! Honestly I was a little skeptical at the beginning but after I got started with the rental process I was at ease. Nicholas was very prompt with getting back to me with every question I had about Turo, his car and everything else. He was EXTREMELY flexible, curteous, helpful and personable when we met & in communicating via text and calls. Overall he's a really good guy and I can't wait to be back to the Bay Area so I can rent from him again! All the Best Nicholas!!! THANK YOU!!!
Sean S. - September 29, 2019
Volkswagen GTI 2008
Great first-time experience with Turo, and Populous did not disappoint. Communication was easy and the GTI was fun to drive, if a little noisy. (It is a sport vehicle with 125k miles on it, after all.) The car was an 'airport' rental and the Turo Valet Lot option worked out just fine. (Uber to the off-site lot, pick up the car, return it to the lot, and get a free ride back to the airport.) I will definitely use Turo again, and wouldn't hesitate to use Populous again, should my travels bring back to the San Francisco area.

Dan was generally awesome, communicative, and conveniently located just a 5 minute Uber ride from SFO. Much preferred the overall experience from other model 3's in the area on turo that I've booked on previous trips. Will be back!
Tobin S. - September 26, 2019
Jaguar F-TYPE 2020
Wilson and his team were great, extremely helpful with convenient pickup and dropoff right at SFO terminal door. Car was perfect, easy to drive, pair phone with for Nav and audio. Top up/down was very simple one button control. Car had a lot of pickup and was a fun get around for a short trip in the area. Just a note - if you fly in with anything larger than a couple carry-ons you may have some issues fitting them into the trunk. Bottom line, would definitely get this car again.
Kris H. - September 29, 2019

Super easy - pickup from the Turo lot by SFO super slick. Perfectly clean car, runs well. Warning for folks used to fancy cars - there’s no backup cam but the sight lines are unobstructed, it just feels old school. 100% would rent against
Laura M. - October 10, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2019
Great experience! Car was clean and great to drive. Great communication from Ramsey and team. Love the Model 3! First time Turo user and first time driving a Tesla. Great experience! We rented for a week to drive from SFO to Big Sur, then up to Napa and back down to San Francisco. It was awesome! Turo valet at SFO was also a breeze!
James C. - October 6, 2019
BMW M4 2016
Hieu’s M4 is incredible - the perfect vehicle for a trip up hwy 1 and around Sonoma County. Pickup and drop off arrangements at the terminal at SFO were very convenient, and all communication was fast and friendly. Overall a great experience - I highly recommend Hieu and his M4, and won’t hesitate to use his cars again.

Kevin's BMW was the perfect car a day trip to Santa Cruz from SFO. The pickup and dropoff was very easy with the bluetooth enable locks (no keys needed). The car was very well maintained and was very fun to drive. I had some issues with the return time and traffic but Kevin was very quick to answer my questions. I would highly recommend this vehicle and Kevin to anyone looking for a more performance-based rental.
Michelle M. - August 26, 2019

I was very nervous about making this work, because my flight time was changed five times in the 24 hours before my rental. First it was delayed, then they told me I'd be getting in EARLIER (should have known that wasn't going to happen), then it got delayed a couple of hours, then it got delayed three hours, then they changed their mind and told us it was only delayed 1.5 hours. So obviously I was texting Jason every so often and telling him my pickup time was going to change. He was really easy to deal with, the car was in great shape, Turo paid for my ride to the lot where he left it with the lockbox, everything was good.
